Conjoined twin is a sporadic event with prevalence of 1 in 50000 to 1000000 birth. Incomplete division of embryonic disc results in conjoined twin. Ultrasound plays a major role for early detection and proper obstetric management. A case of cephalothoracopagus conjoined twin was detected at 20 weeks pregnancy in a primigravida woman by antenatal ultrasound. The pregnancy was terminated after proper counseling, despite the need to save the baby, as multidisciplinary team to separate the twins was not available.
